I read the article about the dangerous intersection in Montrose (“Residents cite unsafe intersection,” March 20). Since I live near the intersection of Waltonia Drive and Park Place, I pass through the corner very often, and I have seen two cars that were severely damaged by a traffic collision.
I agree with one of the residents that lowering the speed limit will not solve the problem. No matter what the speed limit is, some drivers speed if there is no traffic or pedestrians. I understand that adding the speed bumps might cause additional safety issues. What if fake speed bumps are added? Will it cause problems, too?
Of course the fake bumps will not fool drivers for long, but at least we can fool drivers who have never seen them. I guess the parked cars have been hit mostly by drivers who are not familiar with that corner. So drivers who have never been there will certainly slow down, and collisions will not occur.
